spring melancholy -
waiting for the raindrop
on the tip of a leaf

Lovely. Very gentle yet with a strong sense of anticipation.

Thank you very much, JEM. Sometimes, the trajectory of the raindrop seems to be the only sure thing you can count on.

Yes, sad, and so filled with the grace of the moment.

An unusual haiku, to me, because I wouldn't have associated melancholy with spring in a poem.

This is a very effective haiku, very simple, no juxtaposition, but you have me waiting with you and the raindrop, which is always a sign of a good haiku.

Thank you for drawing me in.
